Thoughts


Many are often
Asked by others
'Why are you
So in thought? '

I'm curious:
Can human ever
Stop thought,
Keep mind shut?

Unlike a processor
That needs reboot
Mind of human
Will ever work on

When at slumber
Our thoughts dream.
That is, say some,
'Defragment time'!

I think, thought
Is important
For sixth sense
So vital to humans

Mere thoughts
Will they suffice
Unless followed
By real action?

'The Thinker' by Rodin
Is great as statue
But in life's din
Action is value

Fill your mind
With thoughts good
And leave not
Space for unfit

Thoughts if genuine
Will most certain
Result in action
That are eminent

But what's good
Is subjective.
Today's good
Another's bad?

'Change your thoughts
And you change
Your world', said Peale*
That's so true-n-real.

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
